significant impact on this country, and left us a large legacy. i can just sort of recite some of the things that he did. but even that wouldn't even touch in any way the fullness and the breadth of his impact on late 19th century america. again, most of us know he served five terms in congress. he served in the south carolina senate. he served in the south carolina house. and, of course, he was the collector of customs for the port of buford. but beyond those things, he provides us with sort of an understanding and a way of reinterpreting reconstruction, a way of reinterpreting the civil rights movement. now -- so he sort of brings together those two fields. you heard dr. powers allude to his being sort of the precursor to the second reconstruction because of what he did in the 19th century. well, let me start this way by talking about reconstruction and robert smalls' a role in it. you'll see how these two things come together in terms of how he has influenced american historiography. in 1909, w.e.b. dubois spoke before the american historical association in new york city. he did a present

knew the answer but that did little too ease his concern. slaves who had left the south used the postal system to communicate with loved ones and friends left behind. the reverend robert ryeland, the white minister of the first african church of virginia railed be ernst receiving letters -- his congregation receiving letters from former members of his church who had escaped in which they described the best ways to reach freedom. the use of the mail rivalled slave holders who prohibited its use to disseminate abolitionist materials. starting in 1851, mail sent between new york and california, for example was charged a flat rate of 3 cents per half ounce. this meant that anyone, and that included fugitive slaves like banks could correspond with family and friends cheaply. slaves contemplating escape sometimes made plans with friends and family already in the north and in canada before leaving. a man with the unfortunate name of john bull and joe mayor, two of the five run aways found on a steam ship in the james river in 1858 knew where they were going. bull had arranged with friends in c

of their color out of an american vessel, be they free or otherwise. it is possible that the u.s. government could have followed harrison's suggestion and taken the dispute before the mixed commission jointly set about between the u.s. and britain to deal with such cases but in the end, they chose not to do so. the anderson case is erie similar to another case involving a fugitive slave also known as john anderson who fled to canada at the end of the decade to avoid prostitution for murder. arrested and brought before the court of queen's bench, anderson was finally freed on a technicality following intense public pressure on the british government organized in london by the foreign anti-slaveried society. both cases also raised questions about the political reach of american fugitive slave laws and the many ways opponents found to resist the enforcement at home and abroad. as in so many other instances, it was anderson, handy and lois who took the decision to act, to get on board the ships in baltimore and charleston and doing so they opened up a heated debate with international repercussio

of the work that he did actually laid the ground work for the second reconstruction. another term used to describe the american civil rights movement. secondly, smalls' life is a consummately american story. a story of triumph over adversity, success against the odds, and of course what better place to talk about such an american life than in charleston, smalls' second home and indeed a city unique in its contributions to americana and those things that would become afro americana. i want to talk about smalls' later life. i want to talk about his experiences in beaufort, but mainly in charleston as a way of understanding how these environments prepared him for his later achievements in life. now robert smalls is born in 1839 in beaufort, he's the son of lydia polite, who was the son of -- mckee was a planter and he owned approximately 60 different people who he used mainly in the country side. but lydia and robert comprised the main part of his domestic labor force at his beaufort home. know domestic service had its positive aspects and it's disadvantages for example. domestics were on
